    Don't settle for this

    WiFi doesn't work and cell phone reception is bad. Housekeeping forgot to clean my room.

    Stay elsewhere.

    Old, tired and in need of remodeling would have been fine if it were clean-it wasn't. There is no daily room-service, in-room coffee maker or newspapers as represented. LOUD-walls and ceiling are paper thin. I suggest staying elsewhere.

  • 2.0.Poor


    By far the WORST hotel I ever stayed in. This is a MOTEL btw. Paid $250/night for a 2 night stay. No housekeeping, Only one towel. I asked for more towels and they said they had run out and I'd have to wait an hour for hem to wash some more. Wet carpet. Broken air conditioner so room was 60degrees the whole time so I had to buy a sweatshirt so I could sleep. The room was extremely dirty. Hotel was run-down. Kids playing in hallways indicate this is also a residential hotel. I do not recommend staying here at all.

    Avoid at any cost !!

    Jeff was phenomenal. So helpful, never said no , very energetic , a gem hidden in a pile of crappy hotel. This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Our rooms were never cleans , no towels ( we had to ask for them ) HORRIBLE pillows , mold in shower , kitchen is a joke - no utensils , not even a cup or a spoon - very low pressure of water in shower , water does not mix - either very hot or cold. We were there for three days , sucked it up as no other choice. However all staff was very helpful - really nice. No complaints there.

    Definitely 2 Stars

    This isn’t a hotel it’s a motel. We paid $200 for the night and were given house keys to enter the room that barely even worked. The pillows were the size of a loaf of bread. Place is run down and now well kept. Will not be staying here again.

    Unsecured Room

    This establishment was listed as a Hotel, but it's really a Motel. The room was severely outdated and highly overpriced. At check in we received or room keys ( not a scan card). When arriving at the room we noticed the door was already open. The reason for that was the door did not have a place to be latched. We told the front desk about the issue and the guest services person immediately changed our room.

    Don’t expect much

    Checked in late and the third shift person was not helpful at all. When he handed me the receipt I seen that it was only through Saturday when I booked through Sunday. He offered no help in explaining why or offered any solutions. The next morning I went back to the office and the very kind guys at the front desk was able to tell me in 15 seconds that my booking was split into two reservations and everything was fine. Was something that the night shift person could have done if he cared about his job. The day time staff is very kind and quick to help. Now about the facility. First off, it’s not a hotel. It is a motel with outdoor entrances. The other guests were noisy and heard constant door closing during the night. The rooms are worn to say the least. Dirty walls. Ripped chairs. Mold in the bathroom due to exhaust fan not working. Remote that only works when it wants to. They do not have wash cloths. Only full size body towels or mid size hand towels. Had to walk to a pharmacy and purchase over priced body sponges. I wanted to leave before even seen the room due to the rude desk worker. After seeing the room, I wanted to run away! However, it was a non refundable booking. This was my first time using and I can not see myself using it again.

    Very dirty room. I went into the bathroom and dried feces was on the toilet. I went to get into the tub and there was pubic hair all stuck on the side of the tub as well as on the floor. They also fail to mention until the room is booked you have to pay $25 to park there after spending $200 to stay the night. The man was nice who checked me in and let me know of i didnt return the key it was a $250 charge. That was fine however, I went to return my key and there was nobody to be found when it was time. I left then went back and continued walking around saying hello just trying to find a worker to return it. I would not recommend this hotel.
